Subject: Fascinating study shows vitamin C reduces the risk of cognitiveimpairment
The scientific journal Nutrients recently published a study from New Zealand which suggests that Vitamin C plays an important part in preventing age-related cognitive impairment. The trial involved 400 New Zealanders over 50, who had their blood levels of Vitamin C checked and completed cognitive testing. Not only did higher levels of Vitamin C in the blood reduce the risk of cognitive impairment, but levels indicative of a moderate deficiency caused this risk to double! Higher levels of Vitamin C were also associated with better metabolic health.
- One vitamin C specific study used New Zealand natives of 50 years of age.
- The testing relied on blood levels of the vitamin rather than on dietary intake.
- Researchers ensured that the 400 test subjects underwent an exhaustive battery of cognitive function tests.
"Recently, a team of scientists from New Zealand found that vitamin C can help reduce the risk of cognitive impairment as you age."
